Watch Amy Schumer shut down a heckler by staying cool and heckling an appropriate amount back
Amy Schumer may have recently proven less facile than we want her to be at dealing with nuanced criticism about her actions as a feminist and a comedian, but dang does the woman still know how to shut down an out-and-out jerk.
At a stand-up show in Stockholm, Sweden on Wednesday, Schumer gave a lesson in rising above it — but not too far — when she was interrupted by a heckler. The patron, clearly confused about the appropriate level of audience participation, yelled: "Show us your tits!" Schumer passed and then chatted up the gentleman (donning an apparent "I Love Pussies" tee) until he set himself up for a very solid burn.
Upon learning that the dude works in sales, Schumer asked, "How's that working out? ... Because we're not buying it." Watch the exchange, which made for a much more satisfying coda than some questionable blocks on Twitter, below.
